(Quote from project proposal, circa 1992-1993). The center was established by a grant from the Alexander Von Humboldt Foundation with matching support from UC Irvine. Principal investigators were Murray Krieger and Wolfgang Iser, but members of the center included Hazard Adams, Ernst Behler, Hendrik Birus, Jacques Derrida, J. Hillis Miller, K. Ludwig Pfeiffer, Bill Readings, Pauline Yu, and Wang Ching-hsien.
